that it takes as much time and energy for a young person to come back and then get into a different routine as it did to pare and train them to go to war. i think we need to do a lot of hard thinking, both in the department of defense, and the v.a., about what our policies and procedures are. >> but before the 11th anniversary of the war in afghanistan, we broadcast from colorado springs. we have looked at a unit that came to iraq and came back and could not turn off the kill switch, they were killing their girlfriends and their wives. the murder rate was about 14 times the rate in colorado springs. that is an important point on these issues. we see, in the peace in "the new york times," the story of staff sergeant white smith. he comes home and randomly runs down a 65-year-old woman and throws her into the back of the car and kills her. we see these her the crimes here, but what about what they are doing there? look at the case of robert bayless, the question of the court-martial at fort lewis- mcchord. >> absolutely. war is messy. certainly, these wars in iraq and afghanistan have been ve

tax reform. we could have energy legislation. we haven't even had a defense bill or appropriations bill or cybersecurity. joe lieberman is still trying to get the cybersecurity bill which is really important for this country. really dangerous. but the president, he is our leader. he needs to engage more. we got somebody here in the room that can talk to him. i'm incurable optimist. i think he may do it. >> well, i think it's got to start in this lame-duck session that begins tomorrow. we can't adopt a total bipartisan balanceed budget agreement but we can get -- balanced budget agreement but we can get started. we can have a down payment at least to cover the first year of what otherwise would be the sequester which is $110 billion, and i think we got to prove we can do some tax reform and we can do some entitlement reform and pull it together. and then adopt a process that tries again to push the committees -- according to the regular order -- to come out with enough savings and spending, enough new revenue as part of tax reform and most critically long-term entitlement reform. t
in the golan heights. it doesn't have the time or energy to invest in syria, but if things spiral out of control, how much pressure does that also put on israel to act? >> i think the israelis have been pretty clear, including in the last few days, that they have absolutely no interest in getting involved in what's going on in syria. there's so many different reasons for that. first of all, it's an intractable conflict. beyond that, none of the actors involved are pro-israelis. the worst thing they can do is get involved in the conflict and give the regime some kinld of political cover saying we're not just fighting against revolutionaries but against israeli spies and the massad. from israel's perspective they have nuch problems dealing with gaza. the last thing that they need is to add to that plate, and what can be gained by getting involved in syria from the israel's perspective? whoever wins in syria from israel's perspective is the enemy. >> that's right. thanks so much. >> thank you very much. >> up next, oh, mitt. why can't you just leave well enough alone? first we heard romn
is so perplexing about this, martha. so far no cause for this explosion. a spokesman for citizens energy, the power company out there, no one reported smelling gas ahead of the explosion. a local congressman says a meth lab or a bomb have been ruled out as in terms of causes of the explosion. investigators aren't saying anything but all we know that people were doing their business, in their homes at a 11:00 on saturday night and all at once the neighborhood just erupted in flames and broken glass. the bomb blast, shouldn't say bomb blast, but the blast was so powerful, people three miles away reported their homes were shaken badly. at the center of the blast you see is splintered earth and charred wood. you mentioned 80 homes damaged. 31 homes were damaged they will have to be taken down to the ground. 200 people were forced to stay in shelters overnight. martha: thanks so the people like the man we heard from he was able to save some of those lives but there were two lives lost in this. what do we know about them? >> reporter: well the investigators aren't saying anything. the local el
kind words about me. taxes is growing by leaps and bounds. this is made our country much more energy independent and has brought the price of natural gas down. i hope we can agree we don't want to reverse that and continue to go forward with these wonderful changes that have taken place in energy. we have a chance to see a renaissance in manufacturing. a lot of these jobs going overseas may come home. i have been asked and i would make three quick points. i think this election was about a lot of things. i think it is more complicated than that. i would start with the candidates. mitt romney is a good man. he wasn't as natural a communicator as the president . he had a habit of saying things that didn't help him. the president is a natural and gifted communicator. the democrats had a much better get out the vote operation. republicans need to focus on that. democrats were better in the swing states in getting at the base. the third thing is the following. 55% of moderates voted for barack obama for president. why did the republicans lose the moderates? the farther right positions gove
member on the energy and commerce committee, the gentleman from california, mr. waxman. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman from california is recognized for five minutes. mr. waxman: thank you very much for yielding to me. mr. speaker, i rise in opposition to the bill. a warmer planet has less ice, higher sea levels, more water in the atmosphere, more powerful storms, more frequent floods, dreier droughts and worse wildfires. two weeks ago hurricane sandy brought a powerful and tragic reminder that the combination of sea level rise and more powerful storms can be deadly, devastating and extremely costly. hurricane sandy was the only -- only the latest and most dramatic in a series of extreme weather events. over the past two years we've had recordbreaking temperatures , the worst drought in 50 years , major floods, numerous tornadoes and thunderstorms and vast wildfires. this is what global warming looks like. and if we continue to ignore it it will soon look far worse. we should be doing all we can to reduce carbon pollution and slow global warming. but this bill instead tries to s
doubled the production of clean energy, which promises to reduce the utilization of fossil fuels for power generation. and we continued to invest in potential breakthrough technologies that could further remove carbon from our atmosphere. but we haven't done as much as we need to. so what i'm going to be doing over the next several weeks, next several months, is having a conversation, a wide ranging conversation with scientists, engineers, and elected officials to find out what can -- what more can we do to make a short-term progress in reducing carbons, and then, you know, working through an education process that i think is necessary, a discussion, a conversation across the country about, you know what realistically can we do long-term to make sure that this is not something we're passing on to future generations that is going to be very expensive and very painful to deal with. i don't know what either democrats or republicans are prepared to do at this point because, you know this is one of those issues that is not just a partisan issue. i also think there is -- there are regional diffe
